The group generally meets once a month on dates selected by its members at the home of one of its members.
Le Groupe Français
The group meets in the evening on dates selected by its members. Its purpose is to learn about French culture and to increase fluency in the French language.
The group meets at area restaurants for lunch throughout the year.
